Natural Parasite Exposure Induces Protective Human Anti-Malarial Antibodies.
Immunity 47(6), 1197 - 1209.e10 () [10.1016/j.immuni.2017.11.007]  GO
Antibodies against the NANP repeat of circumsporozoite protein (CSP), the major surface antigen of Plasmodium falciparum (Pf) sporozoites, can protect from malaria in animal models but protective humoral immunity is difficult to induce in humans. Here we cloned and characterized rare affinity-matured human NANP-reactive memory B cell antibodies elicited by natural Pf exposure that potently inhibited parasite transmission and development in vivo.
